About This Event

Lillias White
“Ms. White is a one-of-a-kind performer who combines the sass of a classic blues mama with the skill of a Broadway star. What sets her above, and apart from, most Broadway pop-blues shouters is her ruthless honesty and self-awareness...” The New York Times – Stephen Holden.
